Ace or Ace-Chan (as we have nicknamed him) is a Miniature Australian Shepherd, Blue Merle, with one Blue & one Brownish/Grey Eye!
He was born on January 20th 2010 in Alliston, Ontario (Just about 1.5 hours North of Toronto).
He arrived at his Forever home to his new human mommy & daddy on March 10th, 2010!
Ace now lives with his mommy (me) in New York! Follow us as we start fresh and have adventures in New York!

Off Leash Dog Park Review-High Park, Toronto

So Thursday (Yesterday), we decided to head on over to High Park, which is a little oasis in the city of Toronto. I had heard a lot of good things about their Off Leash Dog Park from other pup parents around town! (Yes we are quite the socialites...)
No seriously, I have literally become obsessed with going to every dog related activity around the city...I just find this new and exciting *dog world* so amazing! I have met so many new & fun people who have the same love for their dogs!

Back to my original High Park...we ended up loving it SO much, we went back Today as well!
It had a really great vibe to it, a lot of friendly pet owners, a lot of dog walkers with their entire *pack*, and dogs of all ages and sizes!

+Large running space with side trails
+Fenced in
+Watering Station with hose
+Tons of picnic benches in the sun & shade
+*Babbling* brooks for your pups to play in

-Even though fenced, there are gaps and the gate could use a little TLC, your dog needs to have a good recall.
-Under construction in certain areas (so who knows how long that will last)

I think when it comes to Dog Parks, it is so important there are safe fences implemented. If a dog were to slip out they could easily get lost in the large park or worse, hit by a car.
I hope that during the construction a new fence is in the cards.
Overall Ace rates High Park Dog Park an A+!
He had his first non doggie pool water experience! 
He jumped right into the mini river and ran through like a mad man. He sure loved splashing & rolling in mud. He had a smile on his face the whole time.
Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure....

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


  1. We love our dog park, too, but it's not quite as big as that one! I hope you have lots of fun there!


  2. It's such a lovely and wonderful place for Ace to have a walk. How I wish we could find a place like this over here for our Laura, Mika and Eva. They will be thrilled...

  3. That's a beautiful park and you look like you're having a furry nice time. This is my first time visiting your blog. You sure are cute!
